"This disc celebrates the 90th birthday of Scottish composer Robin Orr (born 1909). Orr’s compositions include three operas, three symphonies and, of importance to this recording, a number of chamber works and several works for voice and strings... Howard Griffiths and the Northern Sinfonia offer stunningly idiomatic performances, making this vividly recorded disc a fitting birthday tribute–one well worth your investigation."
Classics Today


"The music of Scottish composer Robin Orr is here celebrated in honor of his 90th birthday ... The singing is eloquent. Howard Griffiths leads with a snappy elegance. A handsome birthday present indeed."

Sullivan - American Record Guide - January/February 2001
 


"...I do not hesitate to recommend this most welcome release."
